In my recent blog hopping, I found The Sketchbook Challenge. After immediately becoming a follower & visiting the blog several times I started thinking maybe even I could sketch.
The March challenge theme is "Spilling Over. Last night I was thinking of what is "spilling over" in my life. There is so much right now. I thought about my grateful journal and grateful lists I keep (staying in gratefulness keeps me focused on how much I really do have in my life). I used this mindset for the March theme to sketch. I can draw a flower, okay, and flowers represent happiness and new beginnings to me so that was the start. The main flower is my life in general. I am a blossoming flower at this point in my beautiful life. The rest of the flowers represent everything I am grateful for in my life (I ran out of room and covered the entire 11"x15" page). Now that's spilling over. I sketched it on watercolor paper with a General's graphite sketch & wash pencil. Today I might try to paint it? I will post another picture if I do.
This sketch is named "gratefulness" as that is what it represents to me. The two smudges on this sketch were from my dog Charlene who just had to lick it as I was trying to get a picture. Another lesson learned, keep artwork higher than Charlene's reach when taking pictures.
Happy Monday...Make it a great week!
